I mean why should we care if people get killed, jailed for life or beaten up unless they've done something of value for us?
Nice try, Eric, but the Gay community didn't just show up yesterday. It has been around for ages, quite literally. Nor can it be said to be powerless, given how much money it has at its disposal, and has had for some time.

If the Gay community ever cared about anybody other than itself, it has had more than an ample opportunity to let that concern show, and that's the point you'd trying to dodge. Your community wants to get consideration without being willing to give it, to have others rally to its side without ever expecting it to do the same in return.

It's a completely unreasonable demand, and it's high time that the rest of us learned to say no to you.

using 'faggots' in a (seemingly adult) discussion = self-righteous stupidity

...and I'm definitely not your honey.

I'm sure that you want that to be true. However, there is no such thing as the right to ask others to turn the other cheek, forever. So to speak.

Faggots, and I use that word deliberately, aren't to be numbered among the oppressed, and haven't deserved to be for some time. They're mainly to be found among the oppressors, and as such, merit neither respect nor courtesy. Not that they've ever been noted for the latter, themselves.
...and I'm definitely not your honey.
Whatever you say, honey.

This was already put forward by the members of The Family that are supporting the effort in Uganda. No guessing necessary on this one.

For those who've forgotten, already: in this post, we can see Eric trying to argue that the Gay community should be able to refuse to show any concern for others, without the choice having any impact on the willingness of others to show concern for it. He's there, in print, arguing for the very double standard that some of the rest of you are trying to pretend doesn't exist. How very interesting that so many of you choose not to notice.

B'bye, Eric, and good riddance.

I'm assuming 'sock' means 'alias'?

The answer is no.

I have but one account, and I'm not a 'troll' either.

Anyway, I already stated in my last post that I was done with this thread, so . . Image
